Merry Christmas everyone! I hope the holiday has found you in good health, surrounded by loved ones, and blessed beyond belief. I have a small (late) Christmas gift for you!

Shooting the Moon Book Packet FREEBIE!!!!

Shooting the Moon Book PacketĀ 

My fifth graders loved our last book study so much, I knew I had to get another great book into their had. The book Shooting the Moon by Frances O’Roark Dowell is a great read about a young girl whose brother goes to war in Vietnam. She is so excited for him, at first, but has a change of heart when he starts having her develop film for him.

This book packet is meant to help students reading the book independently or as a group better comprehend the story, make connections, and think about the order of events more closely.

I created this packet specifically for my students, so somethings are specifically done for my class (question types change throughout the packet, summaries are focused on during reading of book, book report / response to literature is completed digitally and is not included in packet). For these reasons, this packet is currently FREE! Take advantage of it while you can!!!




This week is going to be FREEBIE WEEK! Free stuff for your classroom coming at you! I hope this brightens your summer!
